THERAPEUTIC YOGA WORKSHOP – MARCH 24TH & 25TH
During this weekend Anouk will hold two Therapeutic Yoga workshop sessions in which we go into some theory about e.g. anatomy of the body (Saturday) and the nervous system (Sunday) before diving into a lot of practical exercises that you will be able to use and practice on the yoga mat and in daily life.
YOGA FOR A HEALTHY & HAPPY SPINE
The session on Saturday will be all about how to maintain a healthy and happy spine. Nowadays most of us suffer from back (and hip) pains due to our present lifestyles. Many of these can be found in poor posture and wrong use our body in daily life.
YOGA FOR HEALING FROM STRESS & BURNOUT
On Sunday we will focus on how to deal with stress and burnout symptoms. We will learn what we can do for ourselves to reduce stress and anxiety and how to prevent or heal from burnout through yoga asana practice, simple breathing and meditation exercises.
Both workshop days can be followed, but they can also be followed separately, depending on your needs and interest.
This Therapeutic Yoga workshop is suitable for everyone who is interested; for all levels of practitioners – beginning yogis also more than welcome!
In case of any serious physical or mental issues (for which you are/have been treated), we ask you to inform the teacher beforehand.

Anouk is a yoga teacher, originally from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, now based in Finland. Besides teaching Yin Yoga and Therapeutic Yoga, she also works as a Life Balance Coaching and Reiki Healer. In all she does, Anouk aims to inspire people in getting the most out of life, in choosing for themselves; to choose to be the most beautiful version of themselves they can be.
Anouk started practicing yoga after a serious burnout, it immediately touched her soul and ever since she has been a dedicated practitioner of Astanga Yoga as well as Yin Yoga. Her love for the Astanga Yoga practice is still growing every day, but Yin Yoga was the practice to profoundly teach her how to balance all aspects of herself and of life, and how to practice yoga asana in a gentler and more self-compassionate way.
ANOUK TEACHING YOGA
Anouk is a certified Yin Yoga teacher, passionate about and devoted to sharing the teachings from Paul Grilley with as many souls as possible. She completed her Yin Yoga & Chakra Study teacher training (RYT 200) in Amsterdam and to deepen her knowledge of the functional anatomy in Yin Yoga, she soon after completed her Yin Yoga & Anatomy Immersion (RYT 100).
After some years of teaching Yin Yoga her interest in the healing part of yoga started to develop more and more and she committed to being part of a 3,5 year Yoga Therapy training following the yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya (Svastha Yoga & Ayurveda, with Dr. Ganesh Mohan & Dr. Guenter Niessen).
In her yoga classes she wishes to show people that yoga does not need to be fuzzy nor complicated, but that yoga practice offers something to everyone and that with regular practice it can give you a more beautiful, richer and more balanced life. Anouk teaches in a manner that is open and accessible to everyone; beginners and more advanced yogis. Her classes are marked by softness, a lot of individual care and attention and sufficient space to explore and push your physical as well as mental boundaries in a very gentle way. With her yoga classes Anouk hopes to give her students inspiration and courage to bring the principles of yoga off the mat and into real life, as that is where our real yoga practice begins.
Anouk applies Therapeutic Yoga (in private sessions) in case of physical limitations, ailments or injuries or when suffering from (chronic) pain, but also when on an emotional level space and softening is needed (e.g. in the mourning process, with stress symptoms and burnout). Anouk is able to provide you with ”tools” to apply yoga as self-care (therapy) on a daily basis, not only on the yoga mat, but especially in daily life.
